Dressed to Kilt

Dressed to Kilt is an annual charity fashion show benefitting the Friends of Scotland organization.

Notoriously a rowdy and celebrity-filled event, this year's event lived up to its famed reputation with Sir Sean and Lady Connery playing host to the evening's festivities and more A-listers walking the runway than in any year past.

Taking a turn on the catwalk this year were Mike Myers, Andie MacDowell, Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl), Kellie Pickler (American Idol), Dario Franchitti (NASCAR driver and Indy 500 Champion), Brian d'Arcy James (Broadway star of Shrek The Musical), Keanan Duffty (fashion designer), Damien Woody (New York Jets), Alex McCord (Real Housewives of New York City), March Schenkenberg (model), Tom Gold (New York City Ballet principal dancer), Whitney Casey (bestselling author and TV personality), Lauren Tempany (Scottish supermodel), Stephanie Willemse (reigning Miss Scotland), Lawrence Tynes (New York Giants). Project Runway's Laura Bennett joined a host of bold-faced names as judges for the evening.
